The team at Smith & Sons Takanini have completed a sizeable extension to this family home in Whitford, south east Auckland. The extension comprised of a new paved outdoor courtyard area, 2 new bedrooms, a walk in wardrobe with large ensuite bathroom which included a freestanding bath, underfloor heating and a mosaic tile feature. A new music room and hallway with patio access connect the new space to the outdoors. For the exterior, the painted plaster walls and roofing were matched to the existing house and a new feature wall of midland schist was added to the courtyard. The project was completed with double glazed windows throughout.
